¿Qué aprenderé?

The non-thesis professional degree offers students the opportunity to enhance their skills and knowledge in geography, particularly applications of GI Science (GIS). The 36-hour curriculum ensures that graduates have a foundation in methods, as well as breadth in topics from human and physical geography. The degree is ideal for professionals seeking to refine their analytical skill sets for use in areas of the private or public sectors, such as business, non-governmental organizations, environmental management fields, planning organizations, and/or education.

The goal of the Research Master's in Science in Geography program is for students to develop a foundation in the discipline of geography and acquire skills that will allow them to become independent researchers.

TRACKS

GLOBALIZATION, DEVELOPMENT AND CITIES

Our global society is more interconnected and interdependent than ever before. Globalization of trade and commerce has increased national wealth and our appetite to consume commodities, technologies, art and culture from around the world. We continue to create spectacular cities to represent our cultural, technological and architectural achievements.

APPLIED GEOMORPHOLOGY

This track enables students to structure their degree plans around conceptual and technical aspects of applied geomorphology. Students completing this track may continue in higher education or find employment with government research and regulatory agencies, municipalities, planning organizations, water supply districts, or environmental consulting firms.

ENVIRONMENTAL ARCHAEOLOGY

The focus of this program is to give students a strong foundation in selected areas of research that will prepare them for entry into research positions or doctoral programs in archaeology. Two principal areas of training are geoarchaeology and zooarchaeology, which derive strength from the faculty and laboratory/collections resources at UNT.

URBAN ENVIRONMENTS

This track prepares students to assume a vital role within the structure of a city government, coordinating the activities of various city departments related to environmental legislation. In addition to the normal requirements, students select courses from content areas, including urban environments, environmental science, city government structure, and environmental law and policy.

WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT

This track prepares geography students to assume active roles in addressing the critical issues of water supplies and water quality. Students follow a curriculum balanced among technical, scientific and political aspects of water resources management.

APPLIED GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS

This track prepares students to meet the growing demand for GIS professionals. Rather than a strictly technical preparation, students acquire the foundation in applied geography that qualifies them to play vital roles in planning, policy and implementation in chosen areas such as urban geography, economic/business development, environmental science and medical geography.

BUSINESS GEOGRAPHY

The objective of this track is to educate students to integrate geographic analysis, reasoning, and technology in support of improved business decisions. The focus on improving the decisions made by business differentiates business geography from urban/economic geography.

MEDICAL GEOGRAPHY

This track focuses on theory and techniques that are needed to understand the spatial patterns of health outcomes, environmental risks and exposures and disease spread, as well as the distribution of health care services and lack thereof.
